DC Athletes Supporting Each Other, Despite Nationalities

DC Sports Nexus ---- Monday, December 10, 2012

I know nothing about international hockey.  Well I really know nothing about hockey at all.  I just happened to randomly be in Prague of the Czech Republic when Jaromir Jagr and the Czech team upset Alexander Ovechkin and the Russian team at the 2010 World Championships.  At one point the entire town square was chanting "Russian Pigs!"  I got the impression that this was a bitter rivalry, possibly not just in hockey?

Czech vs Russia isn't really the point of this post.  The point is that we have players in the city supporting the players on teams of other sports in the city which is cool.  Bringing countries together to support Washington DC!  Here is Wizards forward  (Czech) Jan Vesely rocking an (Russian) Ovechkin Shirsey.  He is also making (Japanese) sushi...for some reason.

Yeah, NHL Lockout.  Time for pics of basketball players rolling sushi.  Fun times.
